Newshosting Debuts Updated Newsreader

August 9, 2012

Newshosting has updated its newsreader to version 1.3.2. The update includes enhancements that will make the newsreader more compatible with the new operating systems coming out on the market, as well as some that are just general improvements all around.

New Operating Systems

Macintosh OS X 10.9, also known as Mountain Lion, is supported by the new USENET reader from Newshosting. Version 1.3.2 also supports the new Windows 8 operating system, which hasn’t hit the market yet, but which is certain to change the computer world as much as have the other updates released by Microsoft.

If you’ve been worried about compatibility, the new Newshosting newsreader should give you a bit of peace of mind, particularly due to the fact that the company has thought ahead and already included Windows 8 compatibility in their product.

Other Improvements

Newshosting also added an updated database of third-party libraries, according to a press release. These include SSL and UnRar. In addition to this, the company improved the threaded connection functionality of the newsreader and improved support of Macintosh OS X 10.7, as well.

Free Offer

If you want to get your hands on version 1.3.2, you can do so on any of the Newshosting accounts. If you happen to have signed up for the 21 day/30 gigabytes free trial offer that was offered through July 31, you can also download the improved newsreader and give it a try.

This newsreader allows you to hook up to your account and to the USENET servers without having to do anything particularly technical. All you have to do is enter your username and your password and the rest is taken care of for you. Handling PAR and RAR files is automatic and you don’t have to worry about learning the complexities of doing so on your own.

The Service

Newshosting offers up to 60 simultaneous connections to the USENET servers, all of which are protected with 256 bit SSL encryption. The company also offers nearly 4 years of retention and a 99 percent completion rate on all of their binaries. They provide access to over 100,000 newsgroups without censorship of any kind.

Because it is offered as a free download, there’s no reason not to give this new newsreader a try. Particularly if you’re planning on upgrading to Windows 8 or have the Mountain Lion operating system installed on your computer already, you’ll want to download this update to make sure you’re getting the most out of your USENET experience.
